A very competently played first set - the Mason's Children by a mile stands out as the keeper from this one. I mean, listen to Warren hit the groove and GO.
Second set absolutely rocks. That entire suite is just an arc of sublimity - check the way Crazy Fingers emerges and takes forever to find that familiar reggae groove - Warren & co. are determined to keep the bobbing, beautiful psychedelia opening and subsequent dissolving as the main centerpiece of this track...they also play around with some extremely odd - but effective - jam choices (check the funky-what-is-it in Half-Step).
A lot of great shows from this tour. Nothing at all wrong with this one.

Subject: What time does the show actually start ??
Subject: Blue Ridge Homecoming
Subject: The Dead rock, but this post isn't about them...
Subject: I can't believe there's still a "Dead"
Subject: jackie green????
Phils lineup, the one that includes jackie "greg brady" green was one of phils WORST lineups he ever put together. the last i saw this lineup was at gathering of the vibes, and after phil tried to teach them how to play cumberland for 20 min on stage (very unprofessional and by far the worst musical performance i ever herd in my life) i swore off phil till he got back with the dead or reformed the PLQ. it should tell you something about a band when they cant sell out a place like nokia (every show was onsale at the door btw) it's just my opinion and if you dont like it then i'm sorry. i know 17 year olds that can play a dead song with more feeling and WAY more focused jamming then jackie "greg brady" green could ever dream of.
had to get that off my chest. this is a good show and worth the download. it sounds very nice and as the tour goes on the band is finding their groove. the highlight so far has to be the first set from 4/18 (streamed live on sirus)
thanks to the tapers for doing an amazing job at recording and posting the shows so fast.
to all that are on the road be safe and have a good show. tapers are the best, thank you
Subject: Corrina jam...
Subject: The Dead is Phil's best band since 2006
THIS is Phil's new band. Jackie dayz are gone and nothing's gonna bring em back. THIS band is the best band Phil's been in since 2006, hands down. while I could definitely appreciate the Americana/Workingman's Dead grrove of last PLF lineup it is not nearly the MONSTER that this band is.
Subject: Can you feel...
Subject: "And this is not the Grateful Dead but The Dead."
Subject: 100 a ticket
Subject: all songs are now here
And yes $100 is a bit steep but you do get 3-3 1/2 hours of different music each night. Not the same songs each night in an hour and a half to 2 hour show many bands do for $50-$60. And this is not the Grateful Dead but The Dead.
Subject: High time
Subject: Wow! Crazy Fingers and St. Stephen
And that's as primal a St. Stephen as any iteration of the Dead has played in a loooooong time. (At least in the first few minutes anyway.) Don't get me wrong. I loves me some laid back, tightly played '77 St. Stephen, but I prefer the edgier, gettin' after it versions of the Primal years.
I got in on the opener in G'boro and I can't wait until my next (and only other) show in Denver on May 7. Hold that ticket Tony!
Subject: will the little mp3s be available for this show
THANK you to the tapers (can we still call you that if there is no tape involved anymore!)
How amazing that this exists for us to bask in the music as Jerry would have wanted us to.
Subject: Hell Yeah!
I digging IT!!
Awesome sound quality, Great recording. Sounds like a FOB. Thanks Mr.Krall for the taping and fast Upload. Buy that taper a Beer or too!! It also sounds like Warren finally got a Mutron or a good Envelope Filter finally. I hope!
Subject: Still waiting to hear this show
Subject: Once again...
Also had a chance to learn about .flac - very nice. :)
Had tempered expectations of this tour having not seen any iterations of the band post-Jerry.
The show recordings have blown my mind. Far exceeded expectations. I am constantly welling up with tears and laughing like a goofy kid as I listen. It's just how it was in the old days.
I have tix for Buffalo and am thinking hard about more shows.
The band has evolved beautifully - and the new guys fit right in in carrying on the legacy.
Sure I miss Jerry and Brent - but Warren blends brilliant homage to Jerry while bringing his own virutosity to the mix -and Jeff's playing is awesome - and if that is him picking those "Brentish" harmonies - it's wonderful.
I feel bad for all those folks pre and mid tour who chose to hate and bitch and look for what wasn't working rather than what is.
I got Elton John and Billy Joel and U2 charging $259 for tix in my area - this will be the best $100 I've spent in a long time!
Thanks to the band for this - and tapers - bless you and keep 'em coming!!!
Subject: Vocals on SOTM?
The Boys are surely on fire, so many thanks for helping the masses & me to experience it.
Hope the small missing piece is upped soon. :)
For those unfamiliar with the FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) files already here, try Foobar (or another free player like it) & an internet search ;) It'll even sound better, I promise.
Subject: best show since jerry
Subject: Great Show!!
Subject: work in progress
Now the critical side. as mentioned, there is some trouble with this listing. it seems as of tonight, Archive is aware, and possibly Robert as well. When we get is all figured out, it is very worth the D/L! Just a warning to all scrambling to hear a Stephen/Eleven, it is not here (yet :) )
5+ for the speed to which this available, 4+ for the recording.
Subject: Thumbs Up
So long as this edition is not set against anything but itself, good times will be had by all..
Looking forward to the King of All Shows - MSG
Subject: no stream
